Does This Happen In Your Kitchen?

I came home last night and set about making some pasta sauce for dinner… only to be stalled at the first step, when I couldn’t pour olive oil into the frying pan.  Yeah, it was about 37º in the kitchen.  Guess that’s too cold.

    Mine definitely clouds up and becomes syrupy.

    However, see this article on how you’re wasting your yummy EVO on frying:

    “wasting your yummy EVO on frying”
    Interesting, thanks. In general I use canola for most frying, except “Italian” dishes which for some reason I tend to do with olive. Also, we seem to have acquired about 7 bottles of olive oil, so I’m trying to use it up. But maybe I’ll change my habits.

    My olive oil, honey, and Dawn dish detergent are all essentially solid at the moment.

    I keep mine next to the stove to preheat while I’m cooking, and i have to warm up my dish soap as well. Both of them started doing that in late December. i flowed your example of not heating my home much this year i was amazed my home mostly sits at basement temp. at 40 – 42 for the most part.

    We did switch dish detergent brands back in December because the whole foods “365” brand became solid around 50 degrees. 7th Generation seems to be fine at similar temps.
